For
the last few months, I’ve been working in overdrive on the novel I’m currently
writing. Figuring that I could kill two birds with one stone, downloading an
album to listen to has almost become routine. 
Craig Morgan’s album “This Ole Boy” is one of the most recent additions
to my repertoire.

            As the title track rolls, so my
fingers begin to tap. But this time I notice something a bit different than the
previous albums I’ve been accustomed to. This
Ole Boy
begins like your atypical country song then the rhythm changes up
right off the bat but holds the jam. My fingers automatically stop typing as I
lean back in the chair and enjoy the springtime sun with the headphones on.

            More
Trucks Than Cars
is a call home to all the country boys that’ve left for
the bright lights of the city. It also is a song to our troops to say, “Please,
come home alive.” This is almost the perfect song to review at the beginning of
Memorial Day weekend in the U.S. Or, it may just be the perfect song to play
with so many troops still in foreign lands.   

            The
Whole World Needs a Kitchen
is a song that’ll take anyone on a stroll down
Memory Lane right to the intersection of Childhood Avenue. Country Boys Like Me is an acoustic piece of poetry that really
showcases Craig Morgan’s talent as a writer and a singer. The lyrics on this
song are absolutely amazing. There is not much more I can say about it. Just
when you thought he had talent this song comes up and simply blows you away.

            Show
Me Your Tattoo
begins the fiddle, but anybody can relate to someone drunk
outta their mind picking some random picture from that book that every parlor
has. Love Loves a Long Night demonstrates
the range of his voice.

            I really could go on and on. Each
and every song on this album has a unique sound. But, Country Boys Like Me just put this album over the top for me. I
would highly recommend it. This is one of those singers that’ll go down in the
pages of history, shoot he may even write his own chapter for the country music
history books.
